Cosy and charming family apartment in Gothenburg

Cosy and charming family apartment in Gothenburg

Majorna is the new cultural hot spot in Gothenburg, Sweden. Once a classic workers’ distric, you can now find hip restaurants, bars and little shops aplenty.

And the neighbourhood derives much of its character from the typical landshövdingehus – Gothenburg’s typical houses that consist of one brick and two wooden storeys. A building type unique to the Swedish city of Gothenburg.

For Johanna and Mattias, owner of today’s apartment, it was a no-brainer on where to find an apartment in the city. Majorna of course! It is a vibrant area with a relaxed vibe and it is also close to both the sea and the city center.

And once moved in, photographer and stylist Johanna Hagbard (you absolutely need to follow her on Instagram for daily inspiration!) turned the home into a happy and cosy family haven. Find natural materials, playful details mixing with flea market finds and design classics:

Exploring your creativity is easy in this kids room. And I am sure little Ruben is having lots of fun in here.

The cool world map is from here and if you never got around painting a wall with chalk paint, this may be your best inspiration. Add some gym rings for extra fun and keep the rest simple.

There is a little balcony too. Growing some tomatoes, flowers and herbs. The light, something so prominent in Scandinavian homes, is phenomenal and an unmissable accessory.

And you can clearly see the love of details and special things a stylist has in its blood. Have a look at the pictures again and discover the cute kitchen utensils on the wall, the pretty coffee table books or the colours of the plants.

Tack!

A gorgeous Georgian family townhouse in Bath

Georgian family townhouse

At first sight you may think that I am bringing you to Scandinavia again. But… have a closer look… we are in Bath, UK. In a place that I would love to beam right over here to London and call it ours.

It is perfect and it has a huge family kitchen (so important) with a great big window. It has space, gorgeous light and some very interesting nooks that my decor loving heart spotted right away.

And, it is right in the middle of town, on a tiny cul-de-sac, which means that it feels very quiet.

Four beautiful bedrooms plus kitchen, living space and bathrooms are sitting on the second and third floors of a Grade II-Listed Georgian building. Beautifully designed with a serene colour palette and (at the moment, because the place is for sale!) not over decorated. You get a very calm and peaceful atmosphere in there.

This stunning apartment is right next to Victoria Park, Bath’s biggest public park. So, once inside you have some very green views and you have a lot of light. Something rare in UK properties and yet so important with the ever changing weather.

Have you spotted all the plants? It makes such a difference in a house I find.

That kitchen really is a dream! It has everything…

By the way: Bath is the only city in Britain that achieved Unesco World Heritage status.

The charming Swedish family home to steal ideas from

charming Swedish family home

I really hope you enjoyed your school years, otherwise you might be a little creeped out by the idea of living in an old school. Because this charming Swedish family home, with the best kitchen, is sitting in a converted old school in Västertorp, a southern suburb of Stockholm.

This lovely apartment opens into a large living room with a beautiful kitchen and plenty of room for both family life and guests. It is a very airy, bright and vibrant.

This successful transformation from school to residence is really inspiring, I especially love all the windows. For the light but also because I love to decorate window sills.

Remember my article about small children’s rooms?

Here is a great idea on how to include storage space. In style and in a natural way. Using the space under the bed is clever and the lovely colours plus cute leather handles make it really chic.

With the blush pink walls the petroleum colour really shows off!

The school was designed in the 1950s by architect Curt Laudon. A man who designed many school buildings, both in Stockholm and around the country. Västertorp’s school is a classic 1950s building that preserves much of its original appearance, but has been supplemented with balconies in connection with the renovation.

What do you think? Living in an old school building?

22 fun things for a sunny March!

22 fun things for a sunny March!
Yes, Yes! Today is the 1st of March. Already! I really hope that you are located somewhere where you could enjoy some Spring-like days already as well. Here in London it was amazing and our batteries got such a good recharge.

We put our little garden together and even had lunch outside on some days. It is crazy right?

But I also kept track on everything that caught my eye over the last weeks and voila, a new Friday list is born. 22 things I have. Lots of interior (mainly from researches for my Interior Tuesday articles), some Etsy finds and, of course, a few things for mums too.

Enjoy:

I get that we’re in a time where minimal-style kids clothing is having a real moment. You know the type I’m talking about – linen, rompers, muted colours, beige (So. Much. Beige!), kind of Amish – but I feel really conflicted about the whole thing. On the one hand, the colours and styles are undoubtedly gorgeous, but on the other hand, these colours and styles don’t do much to entice little people to get dressed and have fun. I strongly believe happy clothes – colour, easy-wear-silhouettes and unrestricted shapes – are better for children both mentally and physically.

Refreshing talk about kids clothes!

Must-have accessories for a natural kids room!

Accessories for a natural kids room!

One of your favourite kids rooms here on Paul & Paula is the fantastic universe of Sonny Lou. It is a natural children’s room that is full of inspiration and things to take away.

Some DIY ideas, colour combinations that work for both boys and girls as well as cute products.

Therefore I thought I would put together a little mix of some really nice accessories for a natural kids room.

I hope you like these ideas:

1. Beautiful organic cotton swan cushion.

2. Rainbow mobile from Liewood. With pompoms and earthy colours.

3. Very cool boho shelf for a very reasonable price. Such an eye-catcher and so timeless.

4. Rainbow velvet pouf to play, relax and having fun.

5. Organic blanket from Bobo Choses. With a quirky touch. Love it!

 

6. Loving this raffia basket with its turqoise dots. Because every natural room needs a dose of colour. This is just the right one!

7. Fan garland. Here in natural but available in many colours. Probably one of my favourite accessories – these are so elegant, come in the best colours and just add a touch of whimsy to any room.

8. Such a pretty lamp. (other colours available too) Not just for the kids room. Makes for beautiful light and ceilings!

9. This hanging cradle is the bomb. If you are about to put a nursery, you need to have this. A dream.

10. Safari bedding in junior as well as one person bed sizes.

 

11. Little knitted fawn. To cuddle.

12. Machine washable cushion.

13. Quilted bed throw or blanket. Here in mustard but available in other divine colours as well.

14. Can you ever have enough storage baskets? Especially when they are this cute?

15. Fun print from the Mado X Soft Gallery collab.

 

See you tomorrow for a new Friday List!
